Pretty wine and good wine. Yet not mind blowing or near as good as Vietti’s Barolos. True to its varietal characteristics, one can taste the tar, rose petals, floral elements, and high acidity and tannins, while staying light on its feet. Speaks of its place of origin and is a great food companion. By itself, the wine is less exciting and intellectual. That being said, this will serve its purpose well to accompany an occasional weekday dinner for the next few years. Pork, chicken, and veal should make for particularly good food matches.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
